a) China did not invade waters that were clearly defined as belonging to any other South Asian country. Thus your claim is factually incorrect. The territory in question is contested by several Asian countries thus its far from established whose landmass it should be considered to belong to.
b) What business has the fuxxing US with a deal between CNOOC bidding for Nexen, a purely Canadian company? A US senator writing a letter urging a blocking of the deal? You gotta be kidding me. Who is a little too territorial here? China or the US?
Quote from moneymonger:
I really hope you guy's in Canada carefully review China's belligerence in the South China Sea before
allowing approval for Nexen merger. In case you missed it-China has recently annexed a large portion of
the SCS without any debate with the UN or consultation with its immediate neighbors. Rich fishing grounds
that were traditionally in Phillipine and Vietnamese waters China now considers her own-and has dispached her
formidable navy to seal the deal. What kind of reaction should the civilized world have?? Is this something that
we should ignore and sweep under the rug? After all, China is now the supreme banker to the USA and to much of the world. Is China's supreme importance as the lead economic locomotive greater than the moral imperative of recognizing
and inforcing maritime laws and boundries established sine the end of WWII?
